Data Sense Aeromedia was formed in 2017 and is a family business based in Mudgee, NSW. DSA is a fully insured ($20M PL) and a CASA certified RPA (drone) business, operating with 2 licensed remote pilots.We take flying drones seriously, with all flights undergoing a rigorous risk assessment to ensure every mission is conducted safely and legally.
Initially, DSA was formed to provide services for agriculture and inspections. With Nick Pearce coming on board soon after, it allowed us to provide promotional media & photography services to a wide range of industries. We use a range of state-of-the-art RPA's to capture high resolution images, 4K Ultra HD video and data in a safe, cost-effective and timely manner. All of our post production work in completed in house, not sent to a processing house that is normally overseas.
In August 2018, David travelled to California and meet with Chandler Bennett, the inventor & President of Parabug. DSA was the first certified Parabug operator outside of the USA. We have now partnered with Parabug LLC and formed Parabug Australia to manage and build a network of operators around Australia & New Zealand.
In July 2019, DSA partnered with Australian company Enviroeye to provide Precision Irrigation hardware and a single smart dashboard.
In September 2019, to better reflect our business we moved the agricultural services under the Data Sense Agriculture banner.
